  1. Not unexpected, but I am really disappointed that Ishmael didn't work out better for us. Have been cheering for him to do well... Best of luck to both players!

    Does Buckner meet your criteria?
  3. So here's a theoretical: if the Bengals, in the course of the off-season, walk away from Andy Dalton, would the Colts be interested in spending some cash on a "hired gun" like him? Could be an interesting move, especially if the Colts also drafted a young QB to be mentored by Dalton/Brissett...
  4. This is a reasonable, well-thought-out approach. Improve the OL, WR, TE and RB positions by draft/FA, and look to upgrade our defensive weaknesses, especially DT, CB and safety positions. And add a developmental QB and a kicker "to boot"!
  5. I am a huge Hooker fan, but I have to agree with this assessment. He was nowhere to be found last night, and I'm pretty certain that he was picked on/confused quite often. On big game nights like last night, he needs to show up!
  6. Agree with this. Also, I was ASTOUNDED at the first down running attempts! I think that you have to be thinking it's four-down territory. THIRD down call was weak, and made fourth down yardage (seven?) longer than it needed to be. We had been using Hynes/Williams effectively in delays/underneath crossing route. Wondering why they didn't use them in that situation. Overall a very disappointing effort by the coaching staff. Really thought we'd open things up and the opposite was true...
  7. EE: Mr. Comes up short! Please run a deeper pattern for the first down...
  8. I've also been astounded by the trend of the "talking heads" to either: 1. Ignore the atrocious refereeing in the game on Sunday completely; or 2. Use several other examples of poor calls, but ignore this flagrant, illegal use of the hands by Heyward on Quentin Nelson's face mask. Some have even criticized QN for his "collapse", when even a cursory look at the tape shows Heyward's left hand pushes directly up on Quentin's jaw. Yes, he was bull-rushed, but he probably could have re-established position (in fact, he never lost position, just leverage) except for t
  9. I agree with the comments on us needing DL/DT help, as well as CB help. But I am surprised that no one (so far?) has mentioned OLine depth. When we are "one injury away" from DLine mediocrity, couldn't the same be said about our OLine? They looked pretty ordinary against Denver this weekend, to my eyes at least...
  10. Smart play calling plus execution should go without saying here... but I'm saying it.
  11. Can we say DEFENSE? Time to step up and make them go 3 and out! I can dream, right?!
  12. 50 yard punt, muffed by Rogers... not much good happening in any of the three phases of game for IND today!
  13. Hmm... I wonder if there is any relationship between the appearance of this robot, and QN's "Run the D*** Ball" hat? Okay, I'll go to my room now...
  14. Rounds 2 & 3 wish list: Ford, Murphy, Campbell and Winovich. Thoughts?
  15. I'll go out on a limb and say that CB goes Lawrence with #26, and then SImmons with #34... Then a safety with #59, and we're on a solid base for the rest of the draft (WR, OL, Edge, and CB will round out the rest of the picks...)
  16. I really find this an interesting take. I think I prefer Lawrence to Tillery, and Simmons seems like a potential steal... Does anyone see Lawrence as pick 26, and Simmons lasting to 34? Then a safety (Thornhill was proposed) at 59 seems like a really solid start to the draft. WR, CB, OL and Edge can be added in later rounds...
  17. I am pulling for all these numbers/players: but I am hoping #3 is our dark horse at training camp, and makes the 53 man roster. Come on, Steve!
  18. I agree as well. As much as I appreciate the contribution that Al Woods provided on our "challenged" DLine, I am sorry to say that it looks like he's about to be replaced with either an improved Grover, or a first/second round draft pick. Aren't these exciting times for Colts fans!
  19. I wonder if CB is looking for a C/G draftee (or two?) in the spring. If so, this could make the OL a VERY deep group. Talk about an abundance of riches, having players like Slauson and Glow as depth! I'm just saying'... I expect the same for the DL: drafting an interior (?3T or monster truck NT!) and EDGE rusher from a deep draft class: that would make the current DL a depth machine as well. CB has always been about building the team from the trenches, so I won't be surprised to see us trade down a bit, and look to strengthen the OL and DL. Already looking forward to th
  20. What about Derwin James?
  21. Are you accusing the Colts of re-gifting? If so, I like it! Let's hand the NYG some of that "zero" stuff as well!
  22. THIS! If Inman and/or TY is out, we have to assume that HOU will be chomping at the bit. If either/both of these rookies can stretch the field/create mis-matches for their DBs, then NOW is the time to find this out.
